Did you misplace it? Where were you the last time you saw it? :uhh:

Seriously, I presume you know there is no answer to that type of question.

147 seems reasonable.

the differnce is
1, 1, 1, 2, 4, 8, 3, 9, 27

the pattern is
1^1, 1^2, 1^3, 2^1, 2^2, 2^3, 3^1, 3^2, 3^3

so the next number is plus 4^1

Don't you think these patterns are arbitrary? You can make any pattern and if people get it, great. If not, well nobody cares. Patterns are meh.

For one, they're fun!! :)

For two, pattern recognition comes in pretty handy. These type of puzzles help sharpen that skill. I use pattern recognition all the time at work when comparing efficient design to a projects I'm working on. It also comes in handy when studying for school, and making prediction software based on past events.
